Abstract

The current thesis project is focused in the effects of using mobile devices in the academic performance of the students of the elective subject of Translation II of the Foreign Languages Department. Our project is determined to find out the impact of this type of technology in the language translation process. The effects of using mobile devices in the language classroom is in modern times a growing trend in education in schools and universities, and in many civilized countries and it has always been a topic of interest for academic researchers. Although there are many studies that support the use of technology in language learning, other studies and educators think that the use of mobile devices such as tablets and cellphones may cause distractions in their students. Advances in tablet computers and cell phone technology have greatly improved recently and such devices are now widely used for students and teachers of languages around the world because of their features such as WI-FI connection, high definition cameras, voice recording, video recording and multi-language apps, such as Google Translate, SayHi, itranslator and many others which may help students of this course to complete their translation tasks in a shorter lapse of time. The current research has been divided in different sections to provide a holistic perspective from different points of view. The authors of this study distributed their analysis of the topic in the following stages: delimitation, statement of the problem, objectives, justification, and theoretical framework, and methodology, analysis of data, conclusions, recommendations, and bibliography. Each component has been described in detail to provide as much information as possible
